Through a successful relationship with a designer, we were invited to look at the Russel McVeagh project in Wellington. The client came through our Wellington roadshow and was interested in our products, capabilities and services.

We proceeded to the next stage looking at the project in more detail, including assessing user work habits and needs along with very specific requirements for technology integration. There was significant need for power and data at the user workspace including power access above and below the desk. The project required that we manipulate a base product which had limited capacity for technology management creating a purpose built cable management solution using flexible cable spines specifically designed for use with sit to stand workstations and comprehensive cable management.

Additional products were supplied to further enhance the functionality of the work space, including monitor arms and CPU holders. Because of our locally based manufacturing capability we were able to achieve all of this through working on the factory floor through trial and error.

Following thorough development, at very short notice, Shape created a prototype and assembled it within the Russell McVeagh floor space for client approval. The prototype was left on site for the client to test.

Our ability to respond quickly with applicable purpose built products meant that we were viewed with some favouritism by the client.

This presentation model allows for clients to spend time with the product giving them time to make a confident decision and ensuring that custom made product is the best fit for the project.

The end result was a unique and eye catching fitout and service that exceeded the clients expectations.
